I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central for Mrs. T’s Pierogies. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
So, Broncos or Seahawks? Who do YOU want to win the Super Bowl?
For me, I’m rooting for the Broncos. I’m really not a big football (or, really, any sport) fan, but I’m from Colorado and I feel like I have to at least be somewhat excited that they made it to the big game.
We aren’t planning to have a huge crowd over, and since Sundays are usually a bit busy, with church and everything, I have been trying to think of some simple finger foods and appetizers to make. As I combed through our freezer, I came across a few boxes of Mrs. T’s Pieorgies, and decided that was the perfect idea!
I talked about Mrs. T’s Pieorgies awhile back, and I’ve only grown to love them even more since then. They are such a dynamic dish, that can be easily changed according to your tastes. I think it would be so fun to have a pieorgie bar at our Super Bowl party, where everyone could take the flavor of pierogie they want (already pre-cooked, of course) and add toppings to make it there own.
Here are a few ideas I had for a pieorgie bar:
- A variety of sauces (roasted red pepper, marinara, alfredo)
- Meats (diced steak or chicken, shredded pork)
- Salsas (such as my roasted tomatillo salsa)
- Shredded cheeses — mozzarella, colby monterrey jack, etc.
- Grilled veggies — squash, asparagus, zucchini…I think any of them would pair very nicely with a pieorgie.
I love that there are SO many varieties of flavors — personally, I’m not a huge of cheese filled things, so I was happy to see that Mrs. T’s has a few “cheese-free varieties” such as Potato and Onion, and Potato, Sour Cream, and Chive. Mmm…so yummy! I feel like the sour cream and chive one would taste just like a baked potato, which is something I’ve been loving to have for lunch lately!
Even if you are just going to a Super Bowl party, these are a great dish to bring. They are a no-fuss appetizer that just about everyone can (and I almost guarantee will) enjoy. Plus, they are great for kids and adults alike — I know any Super Bowl party we will be going to probably will have kiddos running around, and Forrest and I don’t usually believe in making separate meals for kids! As we used to say at the daycare I worked at…you get what you get, and you don’t throw a fit (though I don’t think that will be a problem when you are serving pieorgies!)
I’m seriously getting hungry thinking about these — the whipped potatos in the soft, yummy pasta shell is so good. I think I might have to open the box early and make some for lunch tomorrow!
